FRATER ARISTO – CARTOMANCY LOGO CREATION
Recently, I was asked to create a logo for a cartomancy (or card reader). Frater Aristo Cartomancy provides tarot readings in social media communities which is where I have the opportunity to get to know him. I have also received the blessings of his readings. I love that he uses a big metal plate as the surface for his readings. Certain metals are good for divination and give resonance. He runs a few social media groups that I belong to and I really enjoy his friendship and how he is with others that he gives readings to. He is respectful, professional and insightful. His style of reading is a balance of funny and serious, if you are going to get “bad news” its is better to have it delivered through humor.
The personification of the planet Mercury was used in this design, along with a serpent of wisdom, and of course he is carrying his caduceus wand. Mercury is the divine messenger of the Greek gods. He takes messages back and forth to the spirit world. Mercury, Latin Mercurius, in Roman religion, god of shopkeepers and merchants, travelers and transporters of goods, and thieves and tricksters. He is commonly identified with the Greek Hermes, the fleet-footed messenger of the gods.
